Ronald Kranenbarg

Technologist R&D in the Netherlands

Ronald is a food technologist in the R&D department of Marel in Oss, Holland. He has a background as a master butcher and food science technologist. He comes from a family of butchers and cooking meat is still one of his passions – he even has his own website for all manner of meat pictures, recipes and discussions!
Ronald gets a lot of satisfaction from transforming complex data into something easier to understand for both internal and external customers, and this is one of his key functions at Marel.

He describes the atmosphere at work as relaxed but with a strong work ethic and a strong drive to achieve goals within tight timeframes. Ronald is a naturally curious person who enjoys constantly learning and looking for new innovations. He likes the fact that Marel is so often the first to take a step in a new direction.
